Green allegations cast fresh shadow over Arcadia CVA plans

Philip Green

Arcadia owner Sir Philip Green has been charged with four counts of misdemeanour assault in the US over the weekend, which has thrown his group’s restructuring plans into fresh doubt.

The charges against the retail tycoon were filed in the state of Arizona on Friday and come after a fitness instructor alleged that Green repeatedly touched her inappropriately, according to the BBC.

The incident allegedly occurred at the Canyon Ranch resort in Tucson in 2016 and 2018. Green denies that anything ever occurred.
